No new trial for Travis Vader, appeal court rules

No new trial for Travis Vader, appeal court rules Convicted killer Travis Vader's bid for a new trial has been rejected by the Alberta Court of Appeal. "We see no prejudice having befallen the appellant as a consequence of the trial judge's analysis, and no benefit in a retrial to test again whether the appellant should have been convicted of manslaughter," the appeal court said in a judgment released Friday. In January 2017, Vader was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter in the deaths of St. Albert couple Lyle and Marie McCann.

The Supreme Court of Canada has rejected an attempt by triple-murderer Jesse Imeson to appeal a lower court decision that called into question claims Jesse Imeson was found guilty in 2008 of killing Windsor bartender Carlos Rivera and Bill and Helene Regier, from Dashwood, northwest of London.

The Supreme Court of Canada has rejected an attempt by triple-murderer Jesse Iemson to appeal a lower court decision that called into question claims that childhood sexual abuse contributed to his lethal behaviour as an adult.

Imeson was found guilty of killing three people in Southwestern Ontario in the summer of 2007.

On July 19, he strangled 25-year-old Carlos Rivera, a Windsor bartender. Four days later the bodies of Bill and Helene Regier, who had been shot to death, were found in their farmhouse near Grand Bend, northwest of London.

Murder convictions stand for Calgary men who swarmed and killed teen

Murder convictions stand for Calgary men who swarmed and killed teen Two men who helped kill a Calgary teen in a group swarming attack will not get new trials, but a dissenting opinion from an Alberta Court of Appeal judge means they can take their case to the Supreme Court of Canada. Franz Cabrera and Assmar Shlah were found guilty of second-degree murder in 2016 and appealed their convictions. Lukas Strasser-Hird was attacked outside a Calgary nightclub in 2013 after he told a group of men including the killers there was "no need to be racist." He was attacked out front of the nightclub before bouncers took him inside and then out the back door where an angry mob was waiting in the alley.

In October 2008, Imeson, then 23, pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

While in prison in 2009, Imeson alleged that he had been sexually assaulted by Tony "Doe", a former child and youth worker with Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services in Windsor.

In 1996-1997, Imeson spent a few months at the residential institution, which cares for troubled youth.

He also alleged that about a year after leaving Maryvale and while in foster care, he was sexually abused by Father Howarth, a now deceased priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of London.

In September, 2016, a jury found Maryvale vicariously liable for sexual assaults allegedly committed against Imeson by "Doe".

In historic first, Supreme Court of Canada to hold hearings outside Ottawa For the first time in its history, the Supreme Court is taking its hearings on the road to give more Canadians a close-up view of the top court at work. The justices will travel to Winnipeg in late September to hear two appeals and hold meetings with various individuals and groups in Manitoba. "It's important for us to be accessible to all Canadians, because the Supreme Court is your court," said Chief Justice Richard Wagner in a video statement. "The decisions we make affect your life and that of your family and community.

Chronology leading to SCC decision

The jury did not accept Imeson's claim that he was also sexually abused by the deceased priest, and the action against the Roman Catholic Diocese of London was dismissed.

During that trial, Imeson sought to call Dr. Kerry Smith, a mental health clinician employed in the British Columbia prison system who had seen and counselled Imeson over a long series of therapeutic sessions.

Lawyers for Maryvale tried to block Dr. Smith's evidence on the grounds that he lacked the necessary training and expertise to give an opinion on childhood sexual abuse. But the trial judge ruled Smith was qualified to provide "expert opinion with respect to certain issues."

The Ontario Court of Appeal ruled in 2018 that Smith's opinions did not qualify as expert evidence and that the trial judge erred by allowing it to be heard.

As a result, the court ordered a new civil trial between Imeson and Maryvale.

Imeson's attempt to appeal that ruling was rejected Thursday by the Supreme Court of Canada. The high court gave no reason for its decision, as is standard practice.
